every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft
from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are
cold and are not clothed.”

Thomas Edison:
The Task is not Complete ...
8
Thomas Edison:
“There will one day spring from the brain of science a
machine or force so fearful in its potentialities, so
absolutely terrifying, that even man, the fighter, who
will dare torture and death in order to inflict torture
and death, will be appalled, and so abandon war
forever. “

Need a change of heart ... only Jesus can do
that.
